With the last aircraft having left Kabul, the US has pulled all of its troops out of Afghanistan.
Now it is the Taliban ruling Afghanistan again.
The US claimed it was fighting terrorism when it launched the war in 2001,
but it never solved the problem and became mired in the war.
Afghanistan has suffered a great deal of destruction.
Even the Middle East has suffered from terrorism “spilling” over from Afghanistan.
It will take time to see whether peace will come to Afghanistan again. However, one thing is certain: A nation’s destiny must stay in its own hands, and external intervention will only make things worse.
